Pain in life can be a lonely experience. My hope is that you won't have to tackle it alone. I strive to meet people where they are, appreciating the journey that brings them to this juncture in their lives, while helping them to make desired change and find symptom relief. I believe in the inner wisdom of my clients and the power of the therapeutic relationship to tap into it. As such, my approach is warm, collaborative, and interactive. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I work with adults, adolescents, and parents. In particular, I specialize in the treatment of addiction, trauma, depression, grief/loss, and anxiety.

I feel grateful that I love what I do. I work from an integrated/holistic approach to help people both function and feel better, and develop a deep sense of meaning in their lives. I use a combination of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), somatic, and mindfulness-based skills in my work. I am also trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).

Everyone needs to be seen, heard, and supported. I work with individuals from a wide range of cultural background with various intersecting identities. I have held previous positions in hospital, outpatient, and university counseling settings. I believe that my professional training, clinical expertise, and profound belief in the human spirit can help.
